What an absolute treat this place is. We were so pleased to have visited. Even the children in our group, aged 10 to 12, found the exhibits and information interesting. Not bad considering how everything seems to have to come off an iPad or similar these days!
Wonderful people and a wonderful museum; and in perfect keeping with this amazing little place.
Highly recommended for a warm, informative, time-warp experience. Fantastic

As frequent visitors to Appledore we decided to pay this museum a visit. It is a little gem filled with fantastic displays and information. The staff could not have been more friendly. Even taking the time to explain one display in detail. Even a normally grumpy teenagers left with a smile.

Thought we'd pop in to the museum to have a quick look round and were still there 2 hours later. Packed full of informative exhibits starting with the Vikings and through to the present day with a surprising detour into D-Day preparations. Well worth a visit.
